Northwest Ohio Food Council logo


Welcome to the website of the Northwest Ohio Food Council, a collaborative network which has emerged from more than five years of research, planning, programs and projects. Why a food council?

Northwest Ohio consumers spend $3.3 billion on food each year, most produced outside the region. Only $6.8 million is sold directly by farmers to consumers.

  • If just 15 percent of the food we eat at home were purchased directly, it would mean $305 million of new income for the region’s farmers, according to data compiled for a regional food system assessment.
  • Additional benefits of a healthy Northwest Ohio food system are improved health, enhanced quality of life, and a cleaner environment.
